Hosted by Project Equity

Recorded on June 18, 2019

Explore how employee ownership can be an ideal exit strategy.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

    • Sell your company to your employees
    • Exit financially and ensure continued impact in your community
    • Preserve jobs and provide new ownership opportunities for employees

Kirk Vartan, founder of A Slice of New York, discusses why employee ownership was the right choice for him. By turning his business into a coop, Kirk generated wealth for himself through the sale of his company while creating wealth for his employees. A Slice of New York is a prime example of how to transition a successful business to employee ownership efficiently and cost-effectively.
